For dramatic impact, you can experiment with one wall as a ‘feature wall’ & make a theatrical, spectacular statement! This way you can also see whether you like & feel comfortable with incorporating a bit of dramatic ‘look at me’ impact into a room, & how you feel about the intensity of the color. Its better to start with a lighter version of the color – you can always darken the intensity. That’s easier than the other way around.
Feel free to experiment – you’re finding, collecting, & defining, or expanding your own style – Don’t be afraid to combine something Country, with perhaps something French or Mediterranean or Tuscan, or something English or even Asian, & throw in some Shabby Chic or Kitsch, or even a well chosen thoughtful ‘bad taste’ item.
Shop around – don’t buy all your items from one brand name, manufacturer or store. Hand pick your color paints, fabrics, wallpapers, borders & other trimmings to suit your overall vision & picture of what you want to achieve.
You should be able to take an item – one of your lamps or rugs, for example - & move it into any room in your home & have it easily blend in. If you’re not sure where to start – Keep it simple – Start small if it overwhelms you –
